a 70's flashback TV show inspired me to make a Garden Troll Baby.
Bernie, my newfie, gladly let me cut some of his hair off and away I
went. I painted in soft colors as I wanted the viewer to have to look
closely to see what it is.
baby face mold
started by casting the baby face, getting my aluminum foil shaped for
the body and cutting the hair from my dog. Don't worry, it didn't make a
different. He still looks great.
Next, I covered the aluminum foil with clay, cast leaves and flowers in the fondant mold and put them all together.
When I was finished adding all the elements, I made a hole in the head and added the hair.
When it had dried, I sanded edges with Sandits and smooth over some cracks with a clay slurry.
